Hi, I'm Rinku - I'm 34 years old and my family and I are operating a guest house in Bikaner, Rajesthan. We offer short-term and long-term stays for travellers and volunteers who are looking for an authentic Indian city experience. We love to meet new friends from all around the world and I hope to introduce my lovely city to you.
My guest house in Bikaner is situated in the center of the city, very near to the main railway station and bus station. Many famous and interesting sights are within 5-10 minutes walking distance, including the Junagarh Fort, the beautiful Old City, and the local spice market. In the nearby city of Deshnoke you can visit the Temple of Rats, as well as the number 1 camel research centre in Asia. After your explorations you can relax on our newly-renovated rooftop lounge - a great place to view the city and stars. Bikaner is a colourful, non-touristic Rajesthani city with lots of history and lots to see; our guesthouse will give you a good home to explore from!
We also run a camel safari tour just outside of Bikaner, as well as a second guesthouse in the golden city of Jaisalmer. Both of these excursions offer another unique way to further experience the beautiful Rajesthani desert landscapes.
Bikaner is well connected by railway and bus to a number of popular Indian cities. We want to make sure you not only have a good time with us in Bikaner, but also a good travelling experience to and from our guesthouse. Let us know what your travel plans are and we will be happy to assist you.
I hope to meet you, hear of your travelling stories, and to exchange our different cultural experiences!

Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
Volunteers can practice their Hindi or Rajesthani language skills, learn to cook the local cuisine, share cultural experiences, and learn more about the Indian culture and people. Many interesting sights to see!
At our guesthouse, we are looking for you to contribute by:
General cleaning of rooms, common spaces, cleaning floors, washing dishes, cooking in the kitchen, etc. Some help at the guest house front desk may also be needed.
Help with Computers/Internet, Communications and Social Media
Anyone who can help manage some of the online communication platforms for the guest house would be a big help! We are looking into some new ways to reach new customers and expand our business.
We are always looking to improve our guesthouse facilities. If you have some experience with interior renovations or improvements and some suggestions on where we can do better, let us know! We are also looking to do some painting improvements throughout the guest house.
If you have any other suggestions on how we can improve our guest house and the experience of our guests, we will be happy to work with you to make these changes. We believe that the best suggestions can come from travellers like you!
English, Hindi, Rajesthani (Marwadi)
For your contributions to the operations and improvement of our guest house, we will provide you with your own room or space within our dorm (depending on room availability). In addition, we will provide 3 meals per day, primarily consisting of various local dishes. Wifi is available within the guest house.
We are always happy to assist you with exploring the city and sights, and will make sure to answer any related questions you may have. Our first priority is your enjoyment of our city and guest house!
I would ask for 4-5 hours help in one day, 5 days per week. This will ensure that you will have a lot of free time to discover the beauty of this city.
